11  Skully Cherries and Lucky Clover in Needlework: Completed Projects by torrance on: April 10, 2009 01:34:13 AM

I think I'm going to make them into brooches as soon as I figure out what kind of brooches they want to be.
They're both made with 3 strands of thread and in backstitch and satin stitch.

Patterns from www.urbanthreads.com

I finally made the cherries into a brooch

It has two layers of cotton fabric and some padding in between them. Then added some sequins and beads for a little something extra.

12  Measuring Tape Brooch and Skull Earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by torrance on: March 08, 2009 06:00:00 AM

I was at a Finnish nursing convention. Lot of the booths were giving out free crap, and I got these measuring tapes from there. What's a crafty girl to do? Make a cute brooch of course. I like it. And it took all the 150cm of the measuring tape and one button.

I made more earrings. I covered a button with fabric from my broken umberella. I'm still haven't decided if they're ridiculous or cute.

13  How To Carry Your Skates In Style in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by torrance on: March 01, 2009 07:03:13 AM
I made a bag for my niece for her figure skating stuff as she told me to (not asked me to.. well, she's 9). It's huge, cos it has to hold everything and I think it's fairly cute. It took me all together 7 hours.

Close up on the decoration. The ice skate is hand embroidered.

here are close ups on the pocket in the lining and the drawstring. It was my first time using those eylet things:

14  Loving the Bling in Knitting: Completed Projects by torrance on: January 24, 2009 02:03:18 AM

Yarn: Red Heart Dallas (100% acrylic) and Novita Red (80% viscose, 20% polyester)
Needles: 3,5mm circ.
Pattern: Improvised

The hat itself was the perfect mindless knitting for those knitting-during-classes experiences. The kind where you don't have to think about what you're knitting, you can just let your hands work on their own and pay attention to the teacher. I knitted the hat during one school day. The pom-pom and the heart took me almost as long as the hat itself (fine, maybe I'm exaggerating a little bit..)

I think it's cute

15  Zipper Brooches in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by torrance on: January 06, 2009 04:31:18 AM

I had to change a zipper to my winter jacket, 'cos the old one was broken. And I don't want to throw anything out, so...

Yep, just plain black brooches. I usually like to keep things simple

I know everyone and their uncle has made these, but I never did...before now! And I love it. I actually made two, I'm giving the other one to my dad for christmas. I couldn't get a decent pic of the other one, 'cos there's just NO LIGHT in Finland this time of year

At the end of january I posted my knitting tattoo, and it got lonely

So now I have a crochet tattoo too:

My tattoo artist had to do a picture search online to see what crochet hooks look like, how cute is that Smiley
